    [FS][US] sold

    Don't happen to have the original cooler do you? I'd love to have the card, but don't have a cooling system available for it.

    I'd just like to come back to this thread to say I told you so. Rock Paper Shotgun confirmed with Yang that you can output HDMI with a dongle, without the dock. Link @newtekie1

    EVGA is Requesting Scalper-level Pricing for Advanced GPU RMA Program

    You all would be real mad if they charged an $800 deposit, never sent the GPU in and "lost" the deposit, then put the card on ebay for $2500 lol.

    This is all pointless until you show me a video of you holding your clevo in both hands and playing games on it with just your thumbs on the train. If you can do that, then "upgradeability" becomes a legitimate discussion.

    Valve Claims Steam Deck Can Run Entire Steam Library Within Performance Target

    It's better that way imo, because "high settings" means nothing. High settings in one game is not comparable to high settings in any other game. So it's meaningless to make a blanket statement that they're targeting high settings across any game. This is a sign you need glasses lol. Not the...

    That's another good point. They've had to edit the specs page what... 5 times already due to inaccuracies? (edit for the trolls: and every time they've had to edit it, it's because the true spec was better)

    Valve Claims Steam Deck Can Run Entire Steam Library Within Performance Target

    Yes, and you're somehow inferring from the lack of listing, that the official dock will be the ONLY one that supports HDMI lol. Where did you get that part from? DP 1.4 is the superior spec, and supports higher resolutions at higher framerates. THAT's why it was listed instead of HDMI...

    So you pulled it out of your bum then. Roger that.

    Valve Claims Steam Deck Can Run Entire Steam Library Within Performance Target

    It says "USB-C with DisplayPort 1.4 Alt-mode support; up to 8K @60Hz or 4K @120Hz, USB 3.2 Gen 2" It doesn't say "only" and it doesn't explicitly say no hdmi. So where are you getting this from?

    source? USB-C natively carries HDMI as an alt mode. Why would they remove it? (edit: not to mention there are tons of USB docks that don't even use native signals, that use displaylink instead, as a native USB device. They should work fine too)

    Untrue on all counts. Any generic USB-C dock will work, they've confirmed. Which at least insinuates that any signal that USB-C can carry will work, which means *maybe* USB-C-> HDMI without the hub will work. Also, the dock price hasn't been revealed, so there's no way you know it's expensive.

    Valve Claims Steam Deck Can Run Entire Steam Library Within Performance Target

    Almost certainly the reason is 1: cost, and 2: the hardware needed for VRR takes up space, which they didn't have any more of. From window's kernel perspective, the gpu is a separate device. The link between them inside the CPU already has a driver. No issues. Even if there was, it would be a...

    The windows drivers already exist. It's a ryzen APU, and a "semi custom soc" only in the fact that it's got a slightly different configuration. The constituent parts (gpu cores/cpu cores/mem controller, etc) drivers already exist for. It will work out of the box.

    1. good point about freesync, but the apu isn't comparable to a 4500u at all 2. Good point about proton glitchiness, but hopefully this will spur more titles/developers to test this use case and fix said glitches. As for mods... it's linux. It will have a linux desktop. You will have file system...

    [FF] Pay it forward TPU 2.0

    Bump again for a great idea. I really had big plans to clean out my tech closet, and still haven't made the time lol. I'll get to it, and post in here eventually.
